About our Accommodation
The Social Action Services of the University of Algarve have 9 University Residences, with 558 beds, for students taking bachelors and masters degrees. Students who have been awarded grants by the Grant Allocation System have priority, and the remaining students can benefit from this support, if the number of beds available allows it.
The residences are located in Faro, Gambelas and Portimão and have different structures, being organised in the form of residential buildings or apartments.
Designed to give students all the necessary conditions for their well-being and located next to the various UAlg campuses, the residences have rooms with bed linen and towels, equipped kitchen, lounge/study room, TV and Internet access. The SAS also have employees dedicated to the maintenance and cleaning of common spaces, and who are also in charge of taking care of the bed linen and towels in the residences. All residences have a washing machine for free use by residents.
Teachers and researchers (Portuguese and international) can also count on the support of the Social Action Services of the University of Algarve, which provide six residences, with a global capacity of 56 beds, for your convenience.
Living in one of our university residences allows you to enjoy decent facilities, at affordable prices, in a sharing environment that facilitates integration into the academic environment.
